Stats for this track
Datahowler invites you aboard his spacecraft for an interstellar journey into sound. Focusing on themes of outer space and time, Datahowler’s debut solo album, Slowdrifter, is an adventure into 1950s science fiction aesthetics, updated with just the right dose of modern technology. The music explores a diverse range of sounds, paralleling the multidimensionality of space travel.
There is often a misinterpretation that producers cannot play their own instruments, however that is not the case here. Datahowler can certainly still flip a sample, but he did not want to lean on samples as a crutch. Instead he chose to play live instruments on Slowdrifter in order to properly communicate the music’s thematic elements. The idea that one could space travel and explore the unknown final frontier is a metaphor for how Datahowler chooses to explore sound and humanity.
